Questions on Moment belafonte

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been looking at new skis and had it narrowed down to mantras or bones but then my buddy told me to check out Moment skis. The belafonte seems aweful close to these by reviews. How does the belafonte compare to these 2? What are opinions on these skis? The other moment skis I was looking at was the pb&j and Tahoe.
Thanks

Hey man, not sure where you live, but there is a Demo day at Mt. ROSE this Sunday where you d be able to try all three skis that you mentioned.
I skied the Belafonte and Tahoe a Couple of weeks ago and I liked the Belafonte much more. I skied the 178.
It was a stiff ski, really fun when you drive it hard and when you go fast. It was staying on top of the slush and soft stuff at Kirkwood.
I will grab another set tomorrow and demo them tomorrow and Thursday. I can't let you know what I think of them after a longer run.
I would shoot an email to Moment and see if they have any demos where you are.

I'm skiing the Belafonte 178 right now. Very impressed with the ski.
Very easy to ski and just a lot of fun. Edge grip is very good, which is a big deal for me. I need the ski that grips and instills confidence when on edge. Got that.
it stays on top of soft snow and doesn't get deflected. Another good point in my book For a variable conditions ski.
If I had to give it negatives, I'd say it doesn't whip you out of completed turn.
I think that a ski review tends to be subjective a lot so I d always recommend demoing if you can.
I'm really liking the Belafonte and will most likely buy it for next season.
I will try to demo the Bonafide and some other skis and update you if I get a chance.
